Rules of Seduction for the Serious Player

seductionBestselling author Robert Greene is known as the master of persuasion. His new book titled, “The Art of Seduction” offers 24 mind blowing and mind controlling techniques to get what you want by manipulating everyone’s greatest weakness—the desire for pleasure.

Is the man you want just out of your reach? Is he really worth pursuing?

“Everything depends on the target of your seduction,” Greene explains. “Study your prey thoroughly, and choose only those who will prove susceptible to your charms. The right victims are those for whom you can fill a void, who see in you something exotic. They can easily be made to feel isolated. The perfect victim has some quality that inspires strong emotions in you, making your seductive maneuvers seem more natural and dynamic. The perfect victim allows for the perfect chase.”

Green also advices a would-be seductress to create a false sense of security.

“If you are too direct early on, you risk stirring up a resistance that will never be lowered. At first there must be nothing of the seducer in your manner. The seduction should begin at an angle, indirectly, so that the target only gradually becomes aware of you. Haunt the periphery of your target’s life—approach through a third party, or seem to cultivate a relatively neutral relationship, moving gradually from friend to lover. Lull the target into feeling secure, then strike.”

Temptation is a part of life and to lure your man, you must be tempting – as Greene explains:

“Lure the target deep into your seduction by creating the proper temptation: a glimpse of the pleasures to come. As the serpent tempted Eve with the promise of forbidden knowledge, you must awaken a desire in your targets that they cannot control. Find that weakness of theirs, that fantasy that has yet to be realized, and hint that you can lead them toward it. The key is to keep it vague. Stimulate a curiosity stronger than the doubts and anxieties that go with it, and they will follow you.”
